A Simple Bowl of Green Tea Soup

Finding all ingredients for making the Thunder Tea Rice Soup is getting difficult as some of the ingredients are not easily available.  Here is a very simplified soup! Grounded peanut powder can be added, if desired.

This reminds us how much effort by many people and the natural gifts (sunshine, rain, soil) went into growing, harvesting, processing, cooking and serving the food that we eat every meal. How blessed we are!  When we are hungry, we have food.  Living in this era, we get to taste different wonderful and scrumptious cuisines even without having to step out of the country. Maybe, when we have our meal, just be thankful.
